DearRory Ann; - Ot course 1 shall be delighted to write yon for the Lethbridge Herald. It win be almost as good as .taking a,trip there to be able to chat wltU all ray old friends. I have never forgot., ten my pleasant visits In Lethbridge and in promising to write there is just one stipulation tljit In return you will write mo the news ot Lethbridge. I am so glad you sent us the^ photograph ot the Gait gardeiis. I was amazed at the beauty of it. There is no place here In the city to compare with, it. Several' times lately in mentioning Lethbridge, people have aald:; O, yes, that's, a little town In the Canadian northwest, isn't it. And rather snappishly 1 have answered; "No, a city. By the way here's a photograph taken near the down town district." They are surprised at anything so citltied. By rights Dory Ann, I should' hiive been a promoter with a shiny silk hat a lieavy gold chain acrosB a corpulent clrcumtrence a violent desire to boost places and people I like, I want to sing their praises in the mar-ket square. It's a sign ot a noisy disposition is ft not?

The flrsL day.of tHe week Jias never been verily pleasant with Martha in the basement doing the Carally Wiish-Ing to the accompaniment of apIashiilK that would shame the Atlantic oceun and would make the largest steam laundry in the city think It was a dry. cleaning shop. .These little trials arc nothing now. Every,shgp and office without a special license is closed all day Monday, conserving coal. That means ordering pj-ovlslons on Saturday that will carry you through and over the top till Tuesday morning. All day. Monday 1 am full ot anxiety. Appetites cannot be reckoned on especially with these'frosty days. I beg my young son not to go skating as usual on Monday afternoon. Horrors only half a loaf ot bread to do for d'li-ner-and breakfast and a meatless day too. It any of our friends happen to drop In Monday evening my welcome I am afraid lacks something of its old tlnia cordiality. , While discussing Louise Homer's concert last wfeek 1 am wildly raensurhig out in my mind a quarter ot a pint ot cream into four coffee .,cup.s and it. simply won't go. Martha's spla.shlng has faded in a background where she worries me still more with "Mam, what shall we have In place o( meat for dinner?" Alas, Tuesday Is wheatleas! O, I can't help thinking of a noisy Utile newsboy I heard singing yesterday, My Tuesdays nre/wheatless i^iy trousers are seatleas. Poor little tramp he spoke tho truth. Wednesdliy again Is meatless. Yon still feel a little queer after those corn meal muffins. You can't help thinking ot seeing a farmer once mix something tor the chickens that you are sure had the taste of, those corn meal muffins. Martha who by the way was something of a cook in pre-war days but now lias lost her vocation, passes them to you with the air that I Imagine bar tenders will pass glasses ot water across their bars next summer when Detroit goes dry. .She informed me yesterday she would have to leave If I could uot give her a little leeway in fancy cooking, She felt Iter hand was losing Its cunning as it wore! "Mam," she. pleads, "Cau'l you be less patriotic?'.' By the way the poor'soul has sent over a sop. O, Mni'iba-">ou lomptreBs! : t cqn see your buttery oozy sugar coated cakes that onpo adorned my table. No sugor nt most of,the stores and only n pound tttn timovcan yqa get frpm Hit) other's. I heard a poor woman that had only gone to house keeping within the last couple ot weeks, make rather a simpleton of herself In a grocery store by asking very casually with her other orders, tor five pounds of sugar. Sho had probably read llie paper.sbut had just forgotten about It. Tho salesman very rudely pretended to fall backwards, the other customers, laughed and a small boy even ejaculated; "Gee Avhizz, where you been" She went out a sadder but wiser woman. Don't think I'm growling, Dory Ann. I think It's the only way to help win this war, an(l I'm all for conserving. You know so niiich more In Canada about It than we do here. \Ve are just beginning, and you have had so many years of it. You know I sew here tor the British and have these four years and now' by conserving what this country asks us, I feel it Is another way of helping our boys overseas. O, yes, there Is one more day ot denial, Saturday is porkless day., I am sure at tho front there Is nothing that Is appreciated more than ft piece of liacon not counting that divine aroma, which Is In a special little cla^s of its own. I read some-whoro a Tommy's brilliant iclea cf luring the Germans out ot their trenches by sending-over as It Were a barrage of bacon aroma along the entire front. How dreadful If carried out that fate should ordain that day lo semi Into the �ront line .Jewish regiments. Would they eventually -succumb. "6 boy" was here this week;' with its pretty tuneful nirs. In these., first sad the theatres are tilled to overflowing. People with sons overseas go to forget their anxiety for the time being. "\Vhere do> we go from hero," and "The old fashioned'wife" as usual were the favorites. I could shut niy eyes and see the boys thp convalescent soUllers at Fettercalrn last suinnvci'\s)hgingtthem with heart and !;oiil. Any man who writes a' song these diiys that plen^os the soldiers deserves a military cross. , You caii^ But bread Intq their mouths and socks' on their feet', but O to'put cheer Jn thetr heiirts.' � , '� Phyllis Neilson Terry, a niece of Kllen Terry's was hero this week in "Maggio."' 1'saw-her early lu the tall. In tho vaudeville circuit. She gave two scenes from Hamlet and It was a most artistic performance. For one so young sKti took tho part of Ophelia In 11 remarkably fiiileliot|' manner. � TJio staging of the scones was oxc|ut�ltti and her English fairness,' wAs'lovol^i against the rloh sombra,:bockgroun(l.i "Maggie" was a fizzle as tar us being ik play. The.plot is most hackneyed. It Is a tale 9t an American slavey who suddenly finds she Is an heiress to inllllons In Kngland. After taking up her poslttori sh9 .decides she doesn't like it and wishes to returJ to Xew York. It is an Injustice to give Miss Torry with her talent such a clumsy vehicle in which to star There were-not two hundred in the audience the day I was thei'c.
